Hi.
This song was written by Denny G who kindly allowed me to cover it.
It has a sort of 1940's style that I like a lot.
Any comments much appreciated. Cheers.

RD - Country even 8
Bass - Midi from Zydeco3 style plus my Pedulla 5 string
Accordion - RT 1287 Tex Mex
Nothing else.

I’d Be A Fool - Denny G

I’d be a Fool to think that you were sor-ry
Be a Fool to hope you were still there
I’d be a Fool to think that you still loved me
Be a Fool to think that you still care.

Long a-go our hearts were still united
Happy times when we still loved each an-other
Memo-ries that make me feel so hap-py
How I wish you were still here by my side


I’d be a Fool to think that you were sor-ry
Be a Fool to hope you were still there
I’d be a Fool to think that you still loved me
Be a Fool to think that you still care.

Don’t you think that maybe you still love me
Don’t you wish I was still hanging round
The good times are not just the memories
Good times can come back we can love a-gain

I’d Be a Fool to think that you were sorry
Be a Fool to hope you were still there
I’d be a Fool to think that you still loved me
Be a Fool to think that you still care.
I’d Be a Fool to think that you still care.
I’m a Fool cause I think you still care.

Richard,

Good job on that. I like the sparse arrangement. The drums need to be louder during the verse... nice job on the bass...

Hi Richard,

could be some Bavarian folk song, too.
Very nice.

I'm fond of sparse arrangements that leave you
wanting nothing more. And this one is a great
example. Nice use of the TexMex accordion
also!

Enjoyed it.

Thanks for that Floyd. Lifting the drums there has filled the verse out nicely! Good call. Cheers.

Amazing Guenter but now that you mention it i can hear the alps in there. Cheers.

Thanks Janice and Bud. That texmex RT certainly fills in the gaps. Cheers.

Thanks Greg. It sort of reminded me of the boozy party songs I'd hear from the next room as a child. Cheers.

Thanks Mario. Delighted to get that toe moving. Cheers.

Richard, I like the melody of this one. Nice easy sparse arrangement. A case where less is more. Good Job. Tom

Thanks Robert. For the listen and comment. Cheers.

Thanks for the comment Charlie. It's a bit different from the original but still recognizable.

Hi, Rich !

Is it the Harmonica that
brought me that Creole feel ?
In any case, I like the tune
and I like the lyrics !
I may be making a fool of myself
too, you know !:))(grin) !!

Cheers
Dani

Thanks for checking out both versions Alyn. Have been trying to limit the RT's (which are so easy to apply) to what is really needed. Cheers.

Thanks Dani. Glad you enjoyed the texmex accordian. It's one of my favorites. Enjoy your comments a lot. Cheers.

I really enjoyed your choices here. Your use of just three instruments, the accordion as the sole instrument playing chords . Really draws attention to the lyrics.

And the modulation in the last verse - a very creative touch.

You possess a very creative spirit.

much enjoyed!

PG Music News
RealBand® Works Great in Windows® 11!

Here's an introductory look at RealBand® running on the preview version of Windows® 11!

Watch the video.

Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box® 2021!

Check out some of the latest Band-in-a-Box® feedback we've received:

"There's a saying 'Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.' That's exactly what my friend did in 1990. He taught me how to use BIAB and I've used it hundreds of time to do arraignment and to jam with any style band."

"Love BIAB. I use it daily. Their support is great too!"

"RealTracks are amazing!!! I use BIAB for backtracks in my solo act... Still using the basic package and it's all need..."

"I have used Band in A Box for many years. If it would have been around when I was young, I would have been a much better musician. I use it for all my songs I have written and recorded. With Band In A Box I can sit in my room and sound like a whole band without having to put up with them!"

"If you know something about music and take the time to learn the program, you can make it do some amazing things. It is a great help to songwriters who want to demo their song without paying for studio time. It makes changes and tweaks much easier as well."

"Been using it for so many years. It's a great tool. The instruments that I don't have or play make up the void and it saves so much time. I use this program for every song I write."

"Great tool for the songwriter!"

"An essential part of my studio! I write songs on piano, but I'm not a pianist by a long way. BIAB is like having a roomful of session players in your studio, and just the simple act of taking your basic idea and hearing a skilled pianist play it presents so many new ideas and options you hadn't thought of."

"Powerful, easy to use, inexpensive and they even split the modest payments up if you want. No complaints. Lots of satisfaction."

"I added a steel guitar to a fully produced original. He followed every change like he was in the studio reading the chart. Fascinating technology!"

"I have used it to make backing tracks for six CD's with about 12 songs on each. They make a great gift!"

"It's simply a necessity - buy it now - the staff and support do a great job as well!"

"A great tool for us songwriters!"

"I LOVE Band-in-a-Box!"

"I see it as a very worthwhile investment. In fact, from initial purchase about 8 years ago, using the backing tracks I have made, my income from that investment has returned over 5,000% on the investment!"

continued...

Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
